Dick Cheney's daughter Liz is working for the Romney campaign
, "as a senior foreign policy adviser." If she ever gets stumped by an issue, she can always call Dad.
The article concludes:
Liz Cheney previously supported former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, who dropped out of the race last week.
Note what I said here:
Considering that Fred's base is dominated by some the staunchest of GOP conservatives, [his departure from the race] can't be good news for McCain or Huckabee.
Update: Blogger Ed Morissey has thrown his support to Romney. Here's part of his rationale:
First, I want to have someone who supports conservative values. In this, we have no perfect candidates. Fred Thompson came closest, but he quit, and I'm not going to cast my vote for someone who has already dropped out. Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, and John McCain all have some claim to a portion of the conservative mandate based on their accomplishments. Of the four, I trust Romney and Giuliani most to continue supporting conservative principles in the face of opposition -- and in fact I'd probably trust Giuliani a little more.
So why does Romney win out?
Third, we face a tough election if the economy turns south, even mildly. We saw this in 1992 and lost when Bill Clinton successfully convinced people that he had the best ideas for a turnaround. We have one candidate who has undeniable success in the global markets, who understands them and the players that run them. Romney gives us an advantage as the nominee that none of the others can match in this regard.
